Vans’ celebrated designer looks to early Formula One racing for inspiration
Vault by Vans and longtime celebrated designer Taka Hayashi look to the early days of Formula One racing for inspiration with the latest release of two archival styles: The OG Style 24 LX and OG Style 47 LX.
A high-top style, the OG Style 24 LX features full canvas uppers, a textured rubber toe cap, and contrast piping and lace guard. The shoe features Taka’s interpretation of the Classic Checkerboard finish line pattern printed on the uppers, while Vans detailing pulls inspiration from Formula One team jackets. The OG Style 24 LX is offered in two colorways: canvas Checkerboard/classic white/black and canvas Checkerboard/classic white/true white.
For the OG Style 47 LX, canvas uppers, a quilted vamp and contrasting heel stripes echo car racing suits of the ‘70s. Printed midsoles utilize Vans’ classic pattern, reminiscent of checkerboard racing flags. The shoe comes to life in two colorways—Baja blue/dress blues and raven/black— with contrast piping. The blue colorway features white heel stripes, while the black colorway features gold heel stripes.
Vault by Vans Taka Hayashi OG Style 24 LX will be available on February 26, 2021, followed by the OG Style 47 LX on March 1, 2021, at select Vault by Vans retailers.
